12.7 Replacement Commands
Global search-and-replace operations are not needed as often in Emacs as
they are in other editors, but they are available. In addition to the
simple `replace-string' command which is like that found in most
editors, there is a `query-replace' command which asks you, for each
occurrence of a pattern, whether to replace it.
The replace commands all replace one string (or regexp) with one
replacement string. It is possible to perform several replacements in
parallel using the command `expand-region-abbrevs'. Note: Expanding
- Unconditional Replace
- Replacing all matches for a string.
- Regexp Replace
- Replacing all matches for a regexp.
